January 2019 update:
Our gardening club was a real success last year. It’s been amazing seeing children enjoying the simple things created by nature, even in our current world filled with IPhones, Ipads and other gadgets.
I grew up surrounded by people passionate about nature and gardening and I was brought up thinking that animals, insects and plants have the same right to be on this planet as we humans. I’m very keen on passing on this message to the next generation.
So much positivity coming from KS1 and KS2, boys and girls working together in the garden. How wonderful! They all loved seeing the vegetables and flowers growing from seeds, looking after them and harvesting at the end of the growing season.
It’s all about noticing and appreciating the simple and beautiful things that nature offers us. We finished the club with a workshop making a Christmas arrangement that children took home. Everyone absolutely loved it.
Thank you for all your support and we will be back in Spring!
In the meantime I’ll be in touch with RHS and informing them about the progress we made. If you wish to be part of our gardening club team this year, please let us know.
